[laughter] >> stair, yes, for a number of years i have watched that fascination of policymakers at both parties have championed the concept of privatization and outsourcing function that used to be considered inherently governmental. the rise of private contractors and a number of rounds ranging from private prisons, education to more recently military and security issues has been put outward with much rhetoric, but not a lot of evidence in terms of cost effect it has, for example. my question is simply, how much reflects a blind faith in the precepts of the marketplace and adam smith and how much is attached to corporations that will benefit them in the future? i've written a
in american public life. at the end of the table is dan mack, director of the aclu's program, freedom of religion and belief. he evades a wide range of religious liberty litigation, advocacy and efforts nationwide. prior to his work, he was a partner in the up says first amendment law. so what i'm going to do is try to keep this kind of a conversation. so i'll just ask a general question in each of you can answer it and respond to each other as well. with so much we want to cover. first, blistery general historical perspective. how does the state of religious freedom, but which i mean the ability of all americans to their faith compare to say 20 or 50 or 100 years ago? where are we today? maybe we could start at the end of the table and were closer to me. >> first, thanks for having us all here. we appreciate this opportunity. i've spoken to many of you many times in the past. as for the historical perspective, first i just want to say one thing about the terms religious freedom. it is often enhanced to describe the right of religious exercise and expression and i think it is a vital
. dan whether that was pro bono. >> scathingly criticized for representing because their parents were very wealthy families in chicago which is part of the reason why such a famous case was that these boys had been given everything this country has to give answers to wasted by this stupid thread killing. so darryl had to accused -- issued a statement because the papers were talking about the million dollar defense. so i agree that we will go by as special board of the local bar association and establish a suitable fee thinking all the while that mildred ever hold it to him and he would still make seven other thousand dollars or ever was because the two families were wealthy and it began to take the case. he went to the families and they said, well, you said that the bar association. he said, what? kellogg. this is what you said you came to my house the middle of the nine biggest of the lives. it would before the bar association and the of the muslim nuys deity had to sweat with his co attorney. any other lawyer would have been happy with the fee. anybody else to back. >> yes. i would
and there's also a moral issue there too, but thank you. >> thank you. >> so my name is terry dan says. i was in jerusalem in 1973 when the war broke out and all the european nations made a good point of saying we're not going to send any weapons to the middle east because we don't want to encourage the war that has just started. that sets up at the same time the russian were sending weapons to the syrians and egyptians. my concern is with the shiites and the sunnis. if iran gets an atomic of, the question is not that the egyptians will say we want the same toy. the point is that the egyptians, the sunnis, the saudi arabians are sunnis and the iranians are shiite. and most likely scenario is the surface in pakistan will send atomic arms to their sunni brothers in saudi arabia and in egypt. and you'll suddenly have -- you will have atomic arms all over. so i am aware of the dangers of israel, attacking iran and stop an atomic on. it seems to me the dangers of letting them get an atomic bomb, followed by the sunnis in saudi arabia and egypt is much greater. >> i agree with you. i would just

congress move? usage suggests very quickly, but there is an organized issue. >> not necessarily. sorry dan, if you think of this as a two-stage process to detail changes in the tax code, say at the cost-sharing structure or the income related premium structure of medicare, no, i don't think that's going to happen in january. that's where you see the targeting we might have a deadline of june 15 or something like that. for the framework though, you know, think of the bill that is the budget control act worked out in august 2011 when we were approaching the debt limit. that does not go through the normal community crossing. those negotiated by leadership. if there is a firm mark, it will be negotiated and as long as it doesn't get into the details for the tax code and house a targeted down payment. we need weeks to do the details on the entitlement side. you would clearly need the committees. the >> let me also ask if i can -- i don't mean to pick on you, but i want to follow up on sunday announced the decks at the beginning, which is this issue of the have a leadership, which is running for

in california and america and across the globe. and i can think of no more perfect partner dan usc whose reach is global and whose vision and ideals are huge. while arnold fink to the provost i want to also thank them. for the past month since i moved into my usc offices the campus has become my home away from home. when you are on the outside of usc you hear about how they left the best universities in the world. when we become a part of their community, you understand why. but some of the best and brightest students from california and all regions of the world, usc creates a culture that reflect their believe that for the students come for the nation and the world the possibilities are limitless. to fulfil this promise to usc students, the smartest most committed professors, researchers and scholars comprised of faculty and staff and are already engaged in the supporting the work of the institute. i also want to thank mike and beth for asking the policy of the would provide a home for the institute. another brilliant and perfect decision. they're perfectly aligned with the grand vision of ar
has a margin in the house i don't think that he can hold off the republicans against dan obama version of the deal. the believes are stronger than the used to be. i think that we have more leverage over members in the campaign finance issues and other things but i think obama going to the lamar alexander in the senate and there are some equivalence in the house, even if the democrats don't control both houses of congress he would have some leverage to go round the leadership and i suspect he wouldn't mind. he would feel that he is obliged to deal with him in 2013 if romney has lost but people see bipartisanship when it's a leadership negotiation and the other is picking off against the wishes of leadership but the premise on both of those is the rest of the personal relationship before that can occur and the investor pointed out a governor mitt romney will have those talents. i think now that the president obama knows that he has them he is just going to have to demonstrate them more and be more engaged. so the reality is this. the future weeks away from the real work story and i think
